I Am Nuts About You

Catrice I Am Nuts About You Illuminating Blush ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a muted, light-medium peach with a hint of pink and a mostly matte finish. There were a few visible sparkles within the pan of powder to my eye, but it looked matte applied to the skin. I expect that this will work best on lighter skin tones and will not show up well on deeper skin tones due to the muted quality and lighter color. I am light-medium in color and get a hint of color, for reference.

The Illuminating Blush formula is supposed to have a mix of “subtle shimmer” and a “light pearl” that adds color and a “soft glow” to the cheeks. It had good color payoff, which was buildable from semi-opaque to opaque, but it was just on the lighter side of the spectrum. The upside is that it should be forgiving and easy to wear on even the fairest of skin tones, and the pink tinge will make it work across more undertones as well. The consistency was soft, a touch dusty, but blendable on the cheeks. On me, the color lasted for seven hours before fading noticeably.

Oh, wow. I’ve had this since Catrice first started at Ulta. The outer shade is a light to medium rosy puce, nowhere nearly as pink as the photo shows on my iPad. The middle shade is deeper and not as yellow, but probably equally as warm. (More red?) Guess I shouldn’t be surprised, as the 5 orgasms I’ve depotted (and seldom use) display 3 different looks in the pan…but apply virtually the same. My older version also has more depth/intensity than what you received, shows up better…but I’m cooler. Whatever. It’s decent and pretty neutral. It’s funny how analytic we can become about color.

I have very fair skin and this looks like something that would work very well for me on those days where I just slap on some foundation, blush, and mascara and go. It’s such a fresh, cute color. And ya can’t beat that price!

I’m definitely a part of the Cult of Milani Luminoso, when it comes to drug store blushes, but this looks like a cute, more pinky alternative!

I thought this was going to be a product I couldn’t resist – How can illuminating (shine, brighten) be the same as matte (dull and flat, without a shine)? As you often say, money saved! : )

This would def be too light for you. If they deepened it a few shades, it’d be a nice neutral on you. Catrice doesn’t have any deeper shades stateside. All I remember from the German site is they have on helluva big selection. Their stuff plays well with me for a semi-irrelevant reason: apparently, I’m more than 1/2 German. The esthetic and color choices are def influenced by the country of origin. Ulta had scads of Catrice mascaras, which they pared down a lot. I have a slew of Catrice. I think only some of the eye pencils would suit you, maybe some of the matte single shadows. The small eye palettes and blushes are way too light. The eye pencils are decent for the price. And the matte singles are of good quality, but again, Ulta has few, and I’m sure they’re duped in your stash.

Thanks for giving me a concise picture of Catrice cosmetics line, KJH! It’s certainly helpful to know that they don’t exactly cover medium or darker skintones. My coloring is VERY strange, though: med. olive skin, very dark hair, BUT light eyes! And they can seem almost wolflike against my not so fair skintone. My 1/4 Irish ancestry gave ’em to me, plus: freckles! Go figure, LoL!

I like this, especially on you Christine. I understand that many cosmetic wearers will criticize the sheerer look and say that it lacks pigment, but I would say that it gives a beautiful, very natural look (.isn’t that what blush is supposed to do?) The only negative thing that I would agree with is that I don’t really see the illuminating effect (they should not say it’s illuminating or highlighting if it looks matte). I have way too many blushes already for a ‘mostly non blush wearer’ lol but if I needed blush I would absolutely be interns in this one for a natural look.
Btw, quite a beautiful look today. ??
